Happy Valentine’s Day! There’s good news for all you love birds out there, and this time it’s brought to you from Google. A few days ago, the internet search giant launched its very own portal focused solely on helping couples plan their wedding day: Google Weddings.
In a way, it might sound weird that Google’s getting into the wedding business. That was certainly my first thought when I heard the news. If you take a moment to think about it though, it does make sense. You can use Google Docs to access a myriad of different pre-made wedding templates, for example. Create a website with Google Sites to share important information with your guests. Even create announcements with Picnik or organize and share photos on Picasa with your friends after the event.
With all the great web apps available through Google, it’s actually quite a convenient way to get organized for your special day. The best part about it is that a lot of people already make use of these tools now, so they’ll be familiar when you get started planning for this new event. For those who don’t, Google has very kindly made a Google Weddings tutorial page to help get you started. For an event that’s notorious for often being incredibly complicated to plan, things just got a little simpler thanks to Google.
